We woke early again to silence and dark.
We had decided the night before to visit the Chapel of Notre Dame du Deliverance. The Chapel was not far from us.
So another picnic was made Ruby walked and off we went.
We found the turn off to the Chapel at Monthault. The Chappelle Notre Dame De la Deliverance.
The first thing we noticed in the carpark was a stone table tennis table ! Yes in the middle of nowhere, among the picnic tables was a table tennis table made of stone.
It was so quiet there and beautiful, there was no one there only us and Ruby.
As I wandered through the trees I noticed crosses dotted around the area. On closer inspection we discovered that they were all stations of the cross.
We walked up to the chapel, it is a lovely building. Sadly though it was not only locked but from what I could see inside it was rather neglected too.
The statue on top of chapel, which has been rebuilt more than once , is a glorious tribute to the Virgin Mary,it was placed there when the chapel was rebuilt in 1877. The gold was applied to the statue in 1913.
Above is “The Monk’s Stone” I thought it was a Dolman but it was so huge. It is said a hermit lived there, well if he did there was no way in, or shelter to be found there.. it is said a monk did live on this strange site but he lived in a hut on on top of the stones!
Above are three photos of “The Granite Symposium” Fabulous modern features even so I could feel history from within them . The granite itself would be old even if the art and sculpture is new.
There were more stones there and I was so caught up in the feel of the place as was hubby that we failed to photograph them but I have put in links here to the website so you can see these amazing stones and read their history.
The Devil’s Stone
The Slippery or Scary Stone
The Stone of Sacrifice

Then more walking through time and space.
